Microwaves Make Things Hot

There was an article the other day saying that if you microwave a sponge for two minutes it kills the germs on it. Apparently some people who tried it didn’t realize that if the sponge isn’t wet it can catch fire and stink up their house..

The university that said you could sterilize the sponge in the microwave released a statement saying the sponge should be wet first. Maybe everyone shouldn’t be expected to realize this but what really stood out is this “Last, people should be careful when removing the sponge from the microwave as it will be hot.”
